Spring Rain
by Sara Teasdale


\t I thought I had forgotten,
But it all came back again
To-night with the first spring thunder
In a rush of rain.


I remembered a darkened doorway
Where we stood while the storm swept by,
Thunder gripping the earth
And lightning scrawled on the sky.


The passing motor busses swayed,
For the street was a river of rain,
Lashed into little golden waves
In the lamp light's stain.


With the wild spring rain and thunder
My heart was wild and gay;
Your eyes said more to me that night
Than your lips would ever say. . . .


I thought I had forgotten,
But it all came back again
To-night with the first spring thunder
In a rush of rain.
